Leon Wolf at RedState notes that CNN is touting that it has beaten Fox News in the primetime ratings in the key age demographic of 25 to 54 in five of the last eight months. In all-day ratings in that demographic, CNN used to have less than half of Fox's overall viewership, but they now are behind Fox News by nine percent.

Wolf says Trump-boosting is eating into Fox's numbers:

A federal appeals court ruling upholding Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s authority to enforce Arizona state law that makes it a felony for unauthorized immigrants to use stolen identities to obtain work has been bitterly denounced by the hosts of Telemundo’s morning show, Un Nuevo Día.

Politico’s bi-monthly magazine published their third annual “Media Issue,” complete with polls of reporters – who are perhaps the most resistant to being polled, fearing how they might reveal which viewpoint is ideologically dominant in the press.

But the media’s true tilt might be implied from the question “Knowing what you know now, who do think will be the next president?” It wasn’t close. Among campaign reporters, 86 percent said Hillary, and 10 percent Trump (three percent said Sanders). Among the White House reporters, 88 percent picked Hillary, and 11 percent said Trump.

Lacking any self-examination whatsoever, failed McCain campaign head and MSNBC political analyst Steve Schmidt lashed out late Wednesday evening on Mark Levin as the embodiment of “narcissism” and “self-aggrandizers” who have created a “cancer” that’s led “the demise of the conservative movement in the Republican Party.”

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D opened tonight’s episode by attacking the American natural gas industry. Just minutes into “Failed Experiments,” S.H.I.E.L.D. agents zero in on a south Wyoming ghost town that was deserted after oil companies responding to the natural gas boom supposedly contaminated the local population’s groundwater.

Senator Bernie Sanders scored a major victory in his fight against the Clinton political machine Tuesday night in the Indiana primary. Even with that victory the Hillary Clinton friendly media is still calling for Sanders to suspend his campaign and drop out of the race. “Staying in this race, aren't you effectively making it harder for the Democrats to beat the man who you say would be so bad?” inquired CNN’s Dana Bash to Sanders over the phone.

In two separate NBC News updates on the Indiana primary, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd gushed over Donald Trump’s “breathtaking” win in the Hoosier State that offered a “knockout blow” to Ted Cruz’s campaign. Holt led off the first update at 8:43 p.m. Eastern and informed viewers that there was “a major development in the race for president...as Donald Trump scores a big win in Indiana, Ted Cruz is suspending his campaign.”

Ted Cruz dropped out the race for president Tuesday night and CNN’s America’s Choice panel could barely believe their ears. After weeks of saying that Donald Trump was inevitable and his opponents should just give up, now they question the decision to drop out at this point. “Would you have dropped out tonight?” Van Jones asked of Paul Begala.

After losing the Indiana primary to Donald Trump Tuesday evening, Ted Cruz announced he was officially suspending his campaign for president. The somber news brought out the worst in the media who have long hated the Texas Senator for his anti-establishment, conservative values. Several journalists took to Twitter to throw in their final punches at Cruz, who, let’s be honest, will probably continue to get beat up by the media even after leaving the race.

Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield, far-left CNN political commentator Sally Kohn oddly brought up the Indiana Ku Klux Klan from the 1920s as evidence of the state being "socially conservative" and "racially divisive," and therefore a place where GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is likely to win by a landslide.

Her analysis was so bizarre that even the left-leaning Ashleigh Banfield stepped in to "stick up for" Indiana residents who "would absolutely disavow that."

Just as the liberal media gleefully did with Marco Rubio, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Nicolle Wallace blasted Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.) early Tuesday night for simply standing up to Donald Trump and denouncing his promotion of an unsubstantiated National Enquirer story alleging Cruz’s father Rafael may have been a part of the plot to kill then-President John F. Kennedy in 1963.

“And finally, Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who passed herself off as black, has written a book.  And it contains some surprises.  For example, she now claims to be Asian.” - NewsBusted’s Jody Miller

There’s no love story like a presidential love story -- as long as it’s a liberal president. The Sundance Film Festival feature “Southside With You,” chronicling Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date released a trailer today ahead of its Aug. 19 debut this summer.

The film is the “inspiring true story” of the Obamas as forward-thinking 20-somethings who dream of making a meaningful impact on civil rights. Luckily for the movie, although it foreshadows Barack’s presidency many times, it steers clear of his two terms in office. The depressing reality of that would have been much less romantic than the ideals cherished by the characters.

In a nearly 20-minute live interview with Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell spent a mere 17 seconds asking the Democratic frontrunner about the ongoing e-mail scandal. Toward the end of the 19 minute 11 second exchange during the 12 p.m. ET hour, Mitchell raised the topic as an afterthought: “Now, I’ve got to just ask you whether since you last mentioned this to my colleague, Chuck Todd, in April, have you been contacted – or your representatives contacted – by the FBI to set up an interview?”

ABC's Jimmy Kimmel ranted against climate change skeptics on his late-night program on Monday, and accused them of being lackeys for "companies that make pollution for a living." Kimmel singled out Sarah Palin for her promotion of the recent documentary, Climate Hustle, and bemoaned that the issue was even political: "Climate change is not a liberal versus conservative thing. But the people who profit from ignoring it want you to believe it is....the idea that this is some kind of a left-wing conspiracy is nuts."
